INTERDISCIPLINARY EXHIBIT CONTRIBUTION & LECTURES:
Our previous exhibit in Louvain (March to June 2022) ended with the hypothetical question “Where do we go from here”. The Iyonda people as gardians of the Central Congo Peatlands.
Very recently we connected with an international team of Scientists mapping and researching the Congo Bassin Peatlands of which Iyonda forms an integral part.
The ‘CongoPeat’ project is led by prof. Simon Lewis (University College London and University of Leeds), Drs. Bart Crezee (University of Leeds) in collaboration with prof. Wannes Hibau (UGent).
Their contribution to the exhibit will be centrally presented opposing the large tomographic scale model of a typical colony street of Iyonda.
